Every System administrator's nightmare is wiping a system, and I'm sure we've all panicked whilst looking for backups.
It would be nice to have a recycle bin not only for the user interface but the shell as well.
That's what I've written in bash, as a debian and redhat package.
Deleting more than a gigabyte of stuff? If you are it asks for confirmation, this value can be set in the config file, at /etc/recycled.conf

To use as this gitlab repository please copy the recycled.conf file to /etc, the purge_old_recycled_files.sh to /etc/cron.daily and the save-my-bacon file to /usr/bin, or use our debian and redhat packages as listed below:
Finally: I wrote Tuxconfig a while ago, as my dissertation at Kent university for my course in Advanced Computer science. It's a Linux based version of the Windows device installer Wizard.
Anyway seeing as my portfolio proves I can write quality software I'm thinking of relaunching it in python with several modifications. If you are Linux foundation, Ubuntu or an open source player and wish to sponsor it please get in touch at email@example.com
